Do you have a passport? What about two passports? You don’t have to be James Bond to have more than one passport. Are you aware that you could become a citizen of a second country and still keep your citizenship with the United States.? It is possible to have a dual citizenship and to get a second passport due to the dual citizenship. There are many ways that you could go about obtaining a second passport. Keep in mind that most of the time it will cost you a lot of money. Luckily there might be cheaper ways to get your second citizenship. If for example you happen to come from a country’s bloodline, this may mean that you could pursue your dual citizenship with that country.
Jus Sanguinis, or right of blood is a way that some countries determine if you can apply for citizenship with them and get a second passport. Jus Sanguinis simply means that citizenship is determined not by the birthplace of your country but by your lineage where you ancestors came from. Some countries even go so far as to extend the right of citizenship to the grandchildren of nationals. This would mean that if one of your grandparents came from one of these countries than you would be eligible for citizenship.
Some of the countries that observe Jus Sanguinis are Poland, Italy, Ireland and India. Italy will recognize citizenship for descendants of Italian nationals going back two generations. India will go as far back as three generations to grant citizenship. These are just some of the countries that will do this. There are many options out there.
